Man shot in Honolulu parking lot

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The shooting happened around 5:30 Saturday morning at a parking lot off of Kalauokalani way and Kapiolani Boulevard. Police tell us that two people were having an argument that led to the suspect opening fire on the victim. Nearby resident Jackie Uahinui was asleep when it happened.

"It woke me up this morning about 5:30," said Uahinui, "I heard this shot and I said maybe it was a car backfiring. Then I heard this guy screaming help me call the cops call the ambulance so I woke my husband up and came out here and the guy was lying in the parking lot there."

According to police, the victim is said to be a man in his 40's. Paramedics say that initially, he was rushed to Queen's Medical Center in critical condition. Uahinui says that arguments and fights happen often in the area and also tells us she sometimes feels like a prisoner in her own home.

"During the day, even during the day I don't like to go out by myself," said Uahinui, "yeah that bad, and at night it's even worse."

The suspect fled the scene before police arrived and is still on the loose. Neighbors say the shooter may have run into a parking structure nearby which is keeping them on edge.

"It scares me, it scares me because my grandchildren come and visit," said Uahinui, "I'm afraid to walk to the store. I wait for my husband to come home from work before we go to the store."

Police say the victim's condition has been upgraded to serious. Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
